Got my first motorcycle in March of 2010. It was a 2001 Honda Rebel 250. I took the MSF Basic Rider Course to get my endorsement and then went back in June of '10 to take the Experienced Rider Course.
I put 12,000 miles on my Rebel by June of 2011. I then upgraded to a very clean 1976 Honda GL1000 Goldwing.

"Be without fear in the face of your enemies.
Be brave and upright that G-d may love thee.
Speak the truth, even if it should mean your death.
Safeguard the Helpless."
